Supporting someone with Asperger????s Syndrome (AS) can, at times, be frustrating and challenging. But a greater knowledge and understanding of the problems facing people with AS can make a huge difference to their lives. This practical workbook was developed in consultation with carers, and can be used in groups or with individuals, concentrating on particular characteristics to learn more about the people you are supporting, or it can be used as a resource for everyday information seeking and problem solving. Atypical social behaviour and the importance of routine are explained, as well as considering relationships, emotions and mental health. Packed with exercises and case vignettes to help you to get to know the person you are supporting better, there is also a trouble-shooting section at the end of each chapter with practical solutions for tackling common problems. Working with Adults with Asperger Syndrome - A Practical Toolkit offers an easy-to-use, person-centred approach, which will prove a valuable resource for families, friends and a wide range of professionals involved in supporting an adult with AS.
